About the Book

Girl in Snow

“From its startling opening line right through to its stunning conclusion, GIRL IN SNOW is a perfectly paced and tautly plotted thriller. Danya Kukafka’s misfit characters are richly drawn, her prose is both elegant and eerie --- this is an incredibly accomplished debut.”  --- Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN and INTO THE WATER.


When a beloved high schooler named Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched --- not the boy who loved her too much; not the girl who wanted her perfect life; not the officer assigned to investigate her murder. In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three indelible characters --- Cameron, Jade, and Russ --- must each confront their darkest secrets in an effort to find solace, the truth or both. In crystalline prose, Danya Kukafka offers a brilliant exploration of identity and of the razor-sharp line between love and obsession, between watching and seeing, between truth and memory.

Compulsively readable and powerfully moving, GIRL IN SNOW offers an unforgettable reading experience and introduces a singular new talent in Danya Kukafka.
